CIO Consumer technology Business Ops

The digital landscape of business is changing. For many companies, what got them where they are now won’t be what moves them forward in the evolving age of Digital IT.

Where there was once an experimental, low-commitment nature to digital change, now companies must face the reality that scaling and business model change are the rule, not the exception. With this new reality, strong internal processes and a design thinking culture are key.  Digital happens at the fringe, but the core systems and IT foundation will make or break the customer experience success. 

Join Apparo at our next CIO Insights forum where we will explore the foundation behind valuable digital business experiences. 

Our panelists will discuss topics including:

  • The necessity of scaling to get ahead, and where scale is being created
  • The importance of securing consumer-centricity, and how to do it
  • Shifting from a “What we sell” to a “How we sell” mindset
  • How company culture plays into the paradigm shift
  • And more!
  • Vinnie Schoenfelder, Principal & Chief Technology Officer, CapTech
  • Prasanna Gopalakrishnan, CIO, Consumer Technology Business Ops, Bank of America
  • Murali Bandaru, SVP for Application & Technology, ATD
  • Mike Seferyn, CIO, Family Dollar
  • Lalit Thakur, Data & Analytics Executive, Digital Transformation, Novant Health
This forum is the second in a two-part series. We'll be continuing last forum's conversation on Delighting the Customer with Digital Experiences that Matter. 

Register now, and we'll see you on November 28th!

Overarching topics include:

  • CITIZEN AI: How does the use and training of AI benefit business by benefiting society?
  • EXTENDED REALITY: If technology is allowing us to "relocate in time and space," how will it be deployed to remove geographic and information distances?
  • DATA VERACITY – a new vulnerability: With data-driven decisiomaking increasing, how does inaccurate and manipulated data pose new threats on the organization?
  • FRICTIONLESS BUSINESS: As strategic partnerships leverage technology to exponentially drive business, how will legacy systems adapt tthe necessary agility and speed required?
  • INTERNET OF THINKING – analytics at the “edge”:  How are companies adapting to the need for analytics happening where it is generated, at the sensor and device?
